I LOVE Southeast Hospital. I have never had the huge hassles over billing from them that I've had with Saint Francis. Saint Francis is notorious for overcharging, and then when you ask for an itemized list of the charges, it's like pulling teeth. It can go on FOREVER, but if you don't pay all that they throw up in front of you, then they will quickly send you to collection. Let me tell you, those guys have no idea what the itemized charges are. It's a real criminal if you ask me!

Barnes coming in....I hope this is true!!! Wouldn't it be funny to see St. Francis get a run for theri money. Barnes is WAY more experienced and farther ahead in the medical field than any in this area!! Everyone keep their fingers crossed. This would be good for the employees also!!!

Some lady embezzled tons of money. Hospital is making up for it by laying off departments. Even though they rip off people everyday on surgeries they are cutting staff. SAD.

Debbie Linnes spent money like a drunken sailor and took profits way down. They are having to make a lot of cuts to make up for it, including some layoffs, but not 20%.
Linnes hit that place like a plague of locusts, destroying everything in her path. They fired her, but not before she did all this damage and got rid of a number of very good people. You have to wonder why something wasn't done about her sooner.

You all have no idea what you are spouting. Friday came and went and some people have been found other positions in the hospital. Yes some people have lost positions or are "retiring". And probably should. Linnea is gone...good. Barnes is not here looking around. They have their own issues. Check the STL dispatch and see they laid people off. Check your facts and you'll find your reliable sources aren't so reliable.

Everyone blames Linnes for the money problems at Southeast. What about the board members, do they not have to approve all the spending from their CEO? Maybe she was a big spender, but the board members are hiding under her skirt and she is getting all the blame when the board members as just as guilty!

The hospital wouldn't pay unemployment it would come out of their unemployment insurance just like every other business that lays off or fires someone. It does't come dirrectly out of their pocket. It may make the the unemployment insureance go up slightlty but nothing that would make a difference. So try a better reason or get your facts straight.

LOL. Totally false. The degree to which this rumor has spread is hilarious. The discussion of mismanagement of money does not indicate that Southeast Hospital is in financial strain nor in consideration to be purchased by another medical empire.

Think about it from just the information non-employees have. KFVS12 would be all over this story if 70 people were laid off by the region's largest hospital / health system.

It doesn't matter that the majority of the nurses went to the same nursing programs in this area. just because you passed nursing school and the boards doesn't make you a good nurse. Most of the RTs around here went to cape program too. Doesn't make them all the same kind of RT
either. It has to do with the person and how good they want to be at their job. School teaches you the fundamentals. You learn your skills once you are actually practicing in your field. A place, in this case, a hospital can have a lot to do with molding a person in there trade. If that hospital wants and expects you to do your very best and provides you with the tools you need to make that possible it makes a big difference.
That was a person/patient's opinion on where they choose to go foe healthcare. That's the beauty of this country. You get a choice. Now maybe you are a new nurse and you don't get this yet. But trust me I have been in my field for over 11 years and your employer has a huge impact on how you perform your job. If you are happy at your job it will show because you wil take care of it and you will only get better.

i can only hope that the outstanding service we have come to know and love will not suffer. hopefully they will lay off from the top down so the service will still be good.
